3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Seems to be my early summer session beer. Orange pour with white head. Not cloudy, but not clear. Smells of orange, coriander and some light wheat esters. Taste is orange vanilla into coriander and crisp lingering fruit finish. Best thing out of upslope in a can right now.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours a 1" white head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is a cloudy golden with plenty of carbonation streaming.
Aroma: coriander is dominate, along with yeasty bread dough
Mouthfeel: light and a little slick. Warming alcohol in the swallow.
Flavor: coriander, sweetness from the malt and added sugar, quite bready sort of akin to a sweetroll, some mild hop in the finish.
Overall: very good, lacks a little bit in balance (too sweet).

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is my favorite Belgium style pale ale out there. It's smooth and highly drinkable for an ale with such a high ABV. Highly recommended.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured cloudy pale orange with a big bubbly white head. Bold aromas of lemon, orange and coriander. Citrus and spice battle for attention over the pleasantly warm ing alcohol undertone. Finishes somewhat dry with a bit of lingering hoppiness. Excellent seasona beer that I really wish was available year round.
